Now the Seahawks have managed to fill that hole in their coaching staff as well.

According to Jason La Canfora of, the Seahawks will hire New Orleans Saints assistant defensive line coach Travis Jones to coach their defensive line.

Jones worked alongside new Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn for two seasons with the Miami Dolphins from 2005 to 2006. He was suspended by the league for 30 days in 2010 after pleading guilty to charges for his role in a real estate scam.
